ASSOCIATION 

OF 

CHICAGO THEOLOGICAL SCHOOLS 

BASIC INFORMATION 

The organization known as ACTS has emerged out of conversations during 1982-84 
among representatives, especially presidents, deans and librarians, of all of the 
theological schools located in or near Chicago. It is intended to be the chief avenue of 
cooperation among its member institutions, particularly in the areas of student cross- 
registration, library access and acquisitions, interchange among faculty members in the 
various disciplines of theological education, and communications between the schools. 

The formation of ACTS follows many years of successful ecumenical cooperation 
primarily within two other organizations, the Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools 
and the Chicago Theological Institute. Other cooperative agreements between these 
schools are embodied in a wide variety of arrangements between two or more institu- 
tions (see pp. 12-16). 

All of the schools in ACTS are accredited members of the Association of Theological 
Schools in the United States and Canada. Each is affiliated with or sponsored by a 
denomination, a diocese, a religious organization or several religious orders. Each offers 
professional degree programs for ministry at the master's and doctoral levels, and most 
offer other academic degrees as well. All offer some variety of continuing education for 
clergy and lay leaders, and conferences, lectures and other programs of interest to a 
wider public. 

Together, the schools within ACTS offer an enormously rich network of resources for 
theological education, making it one of very few such centers of theological education in 
the world. Available to the approximately 3500 students currently enrolled at its 
member schools is a faculty of some 300, over 1000 courses offered annually, and library 
collections of over 1.2 million volumes and nearly 5000 currently received periodical 
subscriptions. Several schools have well-stocked theological bookstores. Most impor- 
tant, ACTS makes it possible for students and faculty to pursue their work, study and 
reflection in interaction with people from many different cultural and theological tradi- 
tions. 

Students in ACTS schools also have access to many other resources pertinent to 
theological education made available by institutions related to ACTS (see pp. 12-16). 
Many also draw on the vast resources of other institutions of higher education and the 
numerous religious organizations and agencies in the Chicago area related to one or 
more of the institutions in ACTS. 

ACTS itself does not offer either courses or degrees. Application for enrollment is 
made to one of the member institutions. 

An essential tool for cross-registration purposes, this catalog also includes information 
about utilizing the many resources for theological education available to students enroll- 
ed in member schools of ACTS. 

Inquiries regarding ACTS should be directed to President Neal Fisher, Garrett- 
Evangelical Theological Seminary, 2121 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL 60201; Phone 
(312) 866-3900.

SUBCLUSTERS AND ADDITIONAL RESOURCES 

CHICAGO THEOLOGICAL INSTITUTE (CTI) 

The Chicago Theological Institute (CTI) was organized by five theological schools in 
1974 for educational and ecumenical purposes: Garrett-Evangelical Theological 
Seminary, North Park Theological Seminary, Seabury- Western Theological Seminary, 
St. Mary of the Lake Seminary and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. 

The schools are located on the north side of the greater Chicago area, with one in 
Chicago, two on contiguous campuses in Evanston adjacent to Northwestern Universi- 
ty, one in Deerfield and one in Mundelein. 

The activities of the CTI are under the direction of a Board of Directors whose officers 
are elected annually. From its beginning the CTI has emphasized the importance of stu- 
dent representation on its boards and committees. 

The CTI sponsors three events annually. In the fall an academic, ecumenical program 
is held for students and faculty members of its five schools. This fall event is planned to 
commemorate a significant moment in the history of Christian theological or spiritual 
development, for example, the birth of Martin Luther (1983),the 200th anniversary of 
American Methodism (1984), and the 300th anniversaries of the birth of Bach and 
Handel (1985). 

In January each member school of CTI observes the Week of Prayer for Christian Uni- 
ty through activities appropriate to its own tradition. Exchange of pulpit speakers is one 
practice that has proven to be an enrichment of the schools at this time. 

The Spring Seminar offered annually is a three-hour course which has addressed 
various theological themes in a variety of forms. In recent years the seminar has focused 
on the diversity in which Christians of many traditions understand "Life in the Spirit." 
In its present format the seminar includes two overnight, intensive retreat experiences 
on the campus of St. Mary of the Lake Seminary. Registration for the seminar is limited 
in number. A minimal fee is requested of student participants. Further information 
regarding the "Life in the Spirit" Seminar can be obtained from Professor John Weborg, 
Coordinator (NPTS); Phone: (312) 583-2700 or from Sister Agnes Cunningham, 
S.S.C.M., CTI Executive Secretary (SML); Phone: (312) 566-6401. 

THE COMMITTEE ON ACADEMIC COOPERATION IN HYDE PARK (CAC) 

The five ACTS schools located in Hyde Park (Catholic Theological Union, Chicago 
Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, McCormick 
Theological Seminary, and Meadville/Lombard Theological School) have formed a 
Committee on Academic Cooperation (CAC), consisting of the chief academic officers. 
The chief executive officers of the cooperating institutions serve as an advisory board to 
the CAC, especially in those areas relating to institutional planning. 

The purposes of the CAC are to: (1) promote cooperation among the academic pro- 
grams of its members institutions; (2) foster cooperation and scholarship among its 
faculties in both disciplinary groupings and interdisciplinary endeavors; (3) develop 
cooperation in areas supportive of academic programs, especially in student services; 
and (4) aid in communication and planning among the member institutions. 

As a new structure, formed to replace certain activities of the former Cluster, the 
CAC is seeking ways in which the exchange of information can be deepened into forms 
of academic sharing closer than those made possible by the ACTS structure. The 
Divinity School of the University of Chicago maintains a consultative relationship with 
the CAC. 



12 



The CAC has assumed the oversight of the Hyde Park Ecumenical Project, a program 
of colloquies and conferences through which faculty members and students of the 
cooperating schools engage topics of theological interest in an ecumenical context. 

The CAC retains an Administrator, Ms. Eva Salmons, to aid in communication and 
the implementation of its projects. The CAC office is located at CTU; Phone: (312) 
324-8000, x59. 

THE COMMITTEE ON INTERINSTITUTIONAL COOPERATION (CIC) 

The Committee on Interinstitutional Cooperation (CIC) was established in 1975 by 
Bethany Theological Seminary and Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, which are 
located on adjacent campuses in west suburban Oak Brook and Lombard. The CIC is 
composed of the presidents, the deans and the business managers of BTS and NBTS, 
and the director of the Seminary Library, which serves both schools. 

The CIC engages in joint planning and discussion related to various areas of coopera- 
tion and common interests such as library, bookstore, student housing, class schedul- 
ing, curriculum planning and course offerings, and faculty professional growth events. 

WORLD MISSION INSTITUTE (WMI) 

The World Mission Institute (WMI) is an annual conference, sponsored since 1970 by 
member schools of ACTS, along with several other educational or mission organiza- 
tions. Each year outstanding international speakers and resource persons deal with a 
significant aspect of Christian world mission. The 1986 WMI focused on the theme, 
"God's Future for the World and the Church's Response: Planning for Global Mission in 
the 1990's." The 1987 WMI is tentatively scheduled for April 9-11, 1987. 

All students and faculty of ACTS schools are invited to participate in the WMI 
without registration charge. Inquiries regarding WMI should be addressed to James 
Scherer (LSTC); Phone: (312) 753-0754. 

FEMINIST THEOLOGICAL COALITION (FTC) 

In the fall of 1980 a group of women in theology and in ministry in the wider Chicago 
area began serious discussion of a program of feminist theology and ministerial prepara- 
tion. The Cluster Women's Caucus, consisting of one faculty or administrative person 
appointed by the president of each school, established the Feminist Theological Coali- 
tion (FTC) for the purpose of encouraging the ecumenical and academic concerns of 
female seminarians and to propose supplemental courses in women's studies. Students 
and faculty plan Women's Study Days, held quarterly, and faculty women meet regular- 
ly to share and critique ongoing writing and research. For further information, contact 
Carol Allen (MTS); Phone: (312) 241-7800, or Karen Bloomquist (LSTC); Phone: (312) 
753-0700. 

In conjunction with the Urban Academy of Chicago, the FTC offers a summer in- 
ternship program for women seminarians in city ministry under the supervision of 
female pastors. For details contact Gretchen Leppke; Phone: (312) 475-4251. 

CHICAGO AREA STUDENTS OF THEOLOGY (CAST) 

Chicago Area Students of Theology (CAST) is a student organization, made up of 
students of the ACTS schools, which seeks to facilitate ecumenical dialogue between 
students in ACTS. Members pay quarterly dues which are used to underwrite CAST 
activities. 

CAST sponsors three events each year: the Fall Fest, Assembly Day, and the Spring 



13 



Fest. Funding for additional events may be granted by the Common Council of CAST, 
based on the following guidelines: (1) two or more schools of ACTS must be represented 
in the event, and (2) participation in the event must be open to the entire membership 
of CAST. 

CAST also sponsors a monthly newsletter to facilitate the communication of student 
events and to provide a forum for student concerns. 

THE URBAN ACADEMY IN CHICAGO (UA) 

4800 North Broadway, Suite 201 Director: Donna Schaper 

Chicago, IL 60640 

(312) 271-7982 

The Urban Academy in Chicago is an interfaith, interracial urban training center 
that works cooperatively with theological schools and churches in the Chicago 
metropolitan area to promote the public ministry of religious institutions. Academy pro- 
grams provide an analysis of urban issues and practical experience in action for struc- 
tural change. 

Courses sponsored by the Urban Academy include: an 1 1-week Summer Quarter Ur- 
ban Internship program for seminarians with placements in urban churches, agencies 
and community organizations; a 6-week Summer Internship program for women 
seminarians with placements in churches served by women pastors; seminary courses on 
community organizing, community development, and politics; workshops on ministries 
addressing hunger, homelessness, joblessness, and congregrational development and 
work. Urban Academy methods include an "urban plunge" where students sleep in 
shelters, eat in soup kitchens and attend neighborhood caucuses and Grass Routes 
Tours — a custom-designed overview of the city of Chicago. Particular attention is paid 
to economic and political structures, power, conflict, and community assessment. 

Academy programs are open to all seminary students, and most of the ACTS schools 
accept its courses for credit. Courses offered by the Urban Academy during the 1985-86 
academic year are listed in the course descriptions in this catalog under the appropriate 
headings with a UA prefix. Because procedures and modes of payment for participation 
in Urban Academy programs differ in individual schools, students are responsible to 
determine what particulars apply at their own schools. 

SPERTUS COLLEGE OF JUDAICA (SCJ) 

618 South Michigan Avenue President: Howard A. Sulkin 

Chicago, IL 60605 Vice-President for Academic Affairs: Byron Sherwin 

(312) 922-9012 

Established in 1925, Spertus College of Judaica, a liberal arts institution, located in the 
Chicago Loop, offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Jewish and 
Hebrew studies, is the largest non-rabbinic training institution of higher Jewish learning 
in the Midwest. In addition to offering degree programs in Jewish studies, Spertus Col- 
lege of Judaica seeks to provide adult continuing education in Jewish studies for the 
Chicago community at large and to be a vibrant cultural resource center for Judaic 
learning and activities in Chicago and the Midwest. 

An agreement between Spertus College of Judaica and the Chicago Cluster of 
Theological Schools was signed in 1978 to provide for cross-registration of students and 
library access. Various courses have been taught on ACTS campuses as well. Spertus 
courses are open for cross-registration for students of all ACTS schools, but special con- 
siderations apply. Because procedures for cross-registration, acceptance of courses for 
credit and modes of payment may differ in individual schools, students are responsible 

14 



to determine what particulars apply at their own schools. 

For further information about all the courses and programs of Spertus College of 
Judaica, contact the Department of Admissions and Student Services. 

CENTER FOR ADVANCED STUDY IN RELIGION AND SCIENCE

The purpose of such a cooperative relationship is to achieve a greater integration be- 
tween the scientific and religious models or images concerning the nature and destiny of 
humans. Dimensions of CASIRAS' work include seminars, courses, conferences, sym- 
posia and guided research as well as co-sponsorship of Zygon: Journal of Religion and 
Science.

(ICUIS) 

5700 South Woodlawn Avenue Acting Director: Dick Simpson 

Chicago, IL 60637 

(312)643-7111

was affiliated with McCormick Theological Seminary. It has since become in- 
terdenominational and cooperates with all Chicago area seminaries. The ICUIS files 
cover 40 years of urban mission history in the USA and abroad, and are available to the 
ACTS community. 

The priorities of ICUIS for 1986-87 include: (1) a six-city research project on effective 
urban ministries, (2) two consultations of pastors and lay people involved in 
racial/ethnic ministries and in metro-ministries, (3) in intensive summer urban ministry 
training program, (4) a quarterly national newsletter Metro-Ministry News, and (5) com- 
piling bibliographies on effective urban ministry. 

ICUIS publishes workbooks on Justice Ministries in the areas of hunger, homelessness, 
joblessness, peace, the Sanctuary movement, South Africa divestiture, and United 
States policies in Central America.

LIBRARY RESOURCES 

The combined library resources of the ACTS schools, comprising over 1.2 million 
volumes of books and about 5,000 currently received periodical subscriptions, represent 
one of the largest collections among the theological consortia of the nation. Nine 
libraries serve the twelve ACTS schools. Students and faculty of the member schools 
have borrowing privileges at all of the libraries, but must abide by the circulation 
policies of each library. The Library Council and the Task Force on Acquisitions further 
the cooperative endeavors of the libraries of ACTS. 

THE LIBRARY COUNCIL 

The Library Council was formed in July, 1983 by the following libraries: Catholic 
Theological Union Library, Chicago Theological Seminary Library, Jesuit-Krauss- 
McCormick Library (LSTC and MTS), Meadville/Lombard Theological School 
Library, North Park Theological Seminary Library, The Seminary Library (BTS and 
NBTS), Trinity Evangelical Divinity School Library and The United Library (G-ETS 
and S-WTS). 

The Library Council operates a courier service among its members to facilitate the 
loan of books and periodicals. Users may request materials from other member libraries 
which will be sent through the courier. The courier's schedule is three times a week dur- 
ing the Fall, Winter and Spring quarters and once a week during quarter breaks and the 
summer. 

The Library Council has published a brochure available at all of its member libraries 
describing the individual strengths and special collections of its members and detailing 
the services of each library. 

TASK FORCE ON ACQUISITIONS 

All of the libraries of the ACTS schools are members of this task force which meets 
regularly to discuss cooperative collection development and is presently working on an 
on-line union list of serials. The Billy Graham Center Library and The University of 
Chicago Library are also members of this task force. 

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES 

In addition to the resources in the libraries of the ACTS schools, the resources of the 
Chicago Area Theological Library Association (CATLA) are available to the faculty 
and students of member schools. The United Library of Garrett-Evangelical and 
Seabury- Western is part of NOT1S 3 (Northwestern Total Library Information System). 
Other member libraries afford access to the Illinois Library and Information Network 
(ILLINET) and to the holdings of OCLC (Online Computer Library Center). 

The Ecumenical Parish Resource Center (EPRC), administered by the Jesuit-Krauss- 
McCormick Library and located at LSTC, provides a variety of current resources for use 
in church programs. The Center's resources include more than 50 religious education 
curricula; a special collection of materials pertaining to the various functions of the con- 
gregation, including worship, stewardship, church organizations, education and simula- 
tion games.

HOW CROSS-REGISTRATION WORKS 

Students of any of the ACTS schools may take courses from any of the other member 
schools directly and with no added charges. Cross-registration into courses of Spertus 
College of Judaica and the Urban Academy (see pp. 14-15) may involve differing pro- 
cedures and payment in each school; students are responsible to determine what par- 
ticulars apply at their own schools. 

Exceptions to the process of cross-registration exist a) during the summer quarter 
when tuition is normally paid to the school offering the course; b) for D.Min. courses 
other than Pastoral Care and Counseling; c) in certain courses with limited enrollment. 
Each school in ACTS reserves the right to limit enrollment in certain courses for 
pedagogical reasons and to set its own policies for the admission of students from other 
schools to such courses. 

A student who cross-registers is subject to the policy for incompletes at the school into 
which he/she cross-registers. 

It should be noted that, although the following listings were accurate when published, 
each school issues a list of changes and corrections just prior to registration for each 
quarter. These lists should be consulted through the Registrar of each school.
